Miami secured a Class of 2024 commitment from 5-star shooting guard Jalil Bethea on Wednesday, giving the program one of its highest-rated recruits ever.

Bethea, out of Warminster, Penn., is the ninth overall recruit in the class and No. 1 out of Pennsylvania, per the 247Sports composite ranking. He's ranked No. 7 overall by ESPN.

Bethea chose the Hurricanes over Kansas, Villanova, Alabama, Syracuse and a host of other schools.

"They showed me a lot on my visit. They told me how they will help my game grow," Bethea told ESPN. "I trust the staff."

The 6-foot-4 guard plays for Archbishop Wood High School.

The last 5-star prospect to commit to Miami was Lonnie Walker in 2017.
